Thirsty Dog Brewing Company – Hoppus Maximus – American-Style Amber Ale

Appearance: Dark orange hue; slight cloudiness with barely any head

Smell: Nose full of malts. Smells like a sweet potato (I know...random!)

Taste: Flavor of malts, moderate chocolate? Bitterness there as well.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation not a factor but the longer you hold it in your mouth, the more maltiness comes about

Overall: Good to try but not my favorite style. It won some awards at GABF (bronze & silver). Its not my favorite style but I would recommend for people interested in trying different style beers. I wouldn’t buy it again. 43 IBUs, 5.0% abv, 13.5 P
